Trusts And Foundations

Cure Kids are fortunate to be the recipients of overwhelming support from a number of different trusts and foundations.

We would like to highlight just a few of the significant grants we received.

Ted and Mollie Carr Endowment Fund

For the second year in a row, the Ted and Mollie Carr Endowment Fund has generously supported research into finding causative genes in childhood epilepsy. In 2015, a grant from the trust has enabled the employment of a research assistant to predominantly recruit and investigate individuals and families living with epilepsy in Auckland.

The Auckland recruitment is on the back of Associate Professor, Lynette Sadleir’s, work studying children and families in Wellington with epilepsy. The success her and her team has had in identifying and diagnosing specific types of epilepsy has led to better treatment paths and ultimately will lead to improved long-term outcomes.


T.M Hosking Charitable Trust

The T.M. Hosking Trust has, for the second time in three years, provided Cure Kids with funding to support the investigation of families who have lost a loved one to an inherited heart condition. The testing can provide families with a cause of death, as well as the risk associated with other family members, which can be incredibly assuring for these families.

Perpetual Guardian Trusts

We would also like to express our deepest gratitude to three Perpetual Guardian Trusts who helped bring about a new initiative finding interventions into child health conditions associations associated with deprivation. The support of Perpetual Guardian allowed four interventions to be funded. You can read about these here.
